Leander should retire gracefully after the Davis Cup tie.

Excellent article of Leander recounting some of his finest davis cup matches -

Chronicles of Leander Paes in davis cup

Some of those memories are sweet. To me the best I recall were his wins against Leconte and Boetsch on clay.

Easy one... They were playing without pride for Germany at the weekend... Comparably harsh critics in German news ;)

Sad! This was a very small draw, with good potential to pick up power points, which Leander desperately needs at this stage.

Leander and Adil are in the final.

At $75K(+H) Leon Challenger, Mexico

[SF] (3) PAES, Leander (IND) / SHAMASDIN, Adil (CAN) d. SAVILLE, Luke (AUS) / SMITH, John-Patrick (AUS) 67(1) 64 10-5

After losing the first set, our pair was a break down till the middle of second set. So, great comeback by them to prevail in the end.

[F] (3) PAES, Leander (IND) / SHAMASDIN, Adil (CAN) vs. MARGAROLI, Luca (SUI) / ZAMPIERI, Caio (BRA)

Great job to see Leander/Adil make the final. (Time to win, and then fly to Bengaluru, Leander!!)

Leander and Adil lifted the doubles title in the Lean challenger with a comfortable win over Swiss-Brazilian pair ... After longtime Lee is winning the title at any level, must be a very emotional win for him.

At $75K+H Leon Challenger, Mexico

Doubles Final
(3) Leander Paes (IND)/ Adil Shamasdin (CAN) bt Luca Margaroli (SUI)/ Caio Zampieri (BRA) 61 64

Comfortable win in the final takes Leander to #55 in the doubles rankings.
Perfect prep for Davis Cup next week!

He will not be picked. Look at who the non-playing captain is.
